Bootney............I have seen this set but I don't think the pans are as deep as the ones Joffy found. Do you think they are? Pictures can be deceiving for me. icon_smile.gif

I purchased the round tturvy set and had a very hard time with them. the batter is thicker on the deep end, so half the cake cooked way faster. my 6" choc cake took over an hour and the texture was messed up; then i did it over an had a repeat performance. my 12" carrot cake took over 2 hours. I do NOT recommend these pans. It is more time consuming than doing the 3or 4 layers per topsy turvy tier. Please correct me with appropriate instructions if there is a better way, but these weren't effective for me.

Those are pretty pans, but I don't quite understand how they'll work. You can only fill the cake batter to the top of the lowest part of the top rim. It'll rise some, but I don't get how you'll get the top slope in the shape of the pan. Plus, if you overfill, it'll spill over at the lowest part of the pan. Am I missing something? Do you set them lopsided into the oven so the top rim is parallel to the floor of the oven? Does that make any sense?

I haven't made any topsy turvy cakes, but I'd be worried that if you put the upper tiers on an angled bottom tier, they'd want to slide off. Gravity will have its way! I like the method where you dig out the lower layer and have the bottom of the next tier parallel to the floor. That seems more stable to me.

I understand what you are saying..You got me thinking icon_rolleyes.gif I wonder if you have to turn them upside down....not sure. But a good question.

I've seen these before...the whole set runs about $150 or somewhere in that range. I've also seen the square set which was about $10 or so more.

I haven't used them but it looks to me as if you would fill and back with the angled side down. I'm not sure though...the baking alone seems like more trouble than it's worth. I know a fellow caker that complains about these pans too plus what sweettoothmom says...I haven't heard any good feedback about these pans (yet).

For now I'll stick with carving and cutting the center out for the next tier to sit flat on...until I get some clearer instructions.

Keep us posted on the pans...I found them on flickr the user said that they took forever to bake and the cake stuck to them and she had lots of problems with them in general. I would love to hear more feedback on them!
